Did You Know?


The filmmakers chose to show a postcard version of Paris in the movie, inspired by such films as Madeline (1998), The Red Balloon (1956), Jacques Tati's films and Ratatouille (2007). As such the film takes place in modern, but slightly anachronistic Paris. See more »

British Librarian: [inside the British Library] I now bring to your attention one of the most stunning treasures inside the British Library's entire collection: the Magna Carta.

Crazy Credits

The opening titles of the film double as an animated short featuring the famous animated counterparts of Inspector Clouseau and the Pink Panther. Similarly the film ends with the animated Pink Panther walking across the screen before the end titles start. Both of these appearances are consistent with the previous films in the franchise.

Did not need to be made
6 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

This is a good example of a film that was totally unnecessary. The original "Pink Panther" films starring Peter Sellers were very funny and artfully done. The Steve Martin ventures are basically unfunny crap. Spending money to view a film as awful as Martin's "Pink Panther 2" is an unpardonable waste of resources. You would be better served by buying a DVD of the Peter Sellers rendition of "Pink Panther 2".

Steve Martin needs to find fresh new material that has never been previously filmed. He used to be funny, and has made some very enjoyable films in the past. His recent remakes of previously done material have been awful stinkers.
